Hi Zeljko,

	big welcome for the pkcs11 patch for gnupg! We use cryptoflex e-gate 
32k cards here and planned to make such a patch, too. You were the quicker:)
	My question: is the MUSCLE pkcs11 library required for this patch or 
any other pkcs11 (e.g. opensc-pkcs11) library will do the job?

	Yes there is! I think like opensc-pkcs11 support would also be nice. 
However, maybe there is no need for it if MUSCLE pkcs11 support works 
just fine...

Thanks for this patch,
